I've got an old P1 200mhz box running BLAG 9002. I am lending it to a mate for a couple of weeks and I want to allow him to connect to the internet via the dialup modem easily, and without giving him the root password.
Is there a way I can put an icon on the desktop that will start the modem dialing, and one to to disconect it?

Thanks

I think if you do something like:

Code:
chown myfriend /dev/ttyS0


or S1 or whatever the serial port is, he should be able to dial without root.

Or you could chmod them world read/writeable.

On my side working so :
Configured redhat-network-control modem "allow connection to all users"
Put a starter "redhat-neat-control" on the desktop.
Double clic to select ppp or eth0 without be root.
